The Kenai Peninsula Borough lies directly south of Anchorage, Alaska’s principal population center. On its south and east sides, it is bordered by the Gulf of Alaska and Prince William Sound, respectively. Cook Inlet divides the borough into two landmasses. The Kenai Peninsula Borough was incorporated in 1964. The Borough’s governmental responsibilities are comparable to those of a county. The Kenai Peninsula has one of the most diverse economies in Alaska. Major industries such as oil and gas, commercial fishing, and tourism strengthen the economy. Commercial fishing and processing included salmon, halibut, crab, shrimp, clams, scallops, herring, and various groundfish.
